2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


For the first time in his career, Cam was able to make consistent big plays in the passing game. He averaged a career-high 8.2 yards per attempt, which was 1.6 yards more than 2014. His completion rate (59.7) fell in line with his career average (59.5) while continuing to rank below the league average in passing attempts per game (31.0). His passing yards (3837) had growth over 2013 (3379) and 2014 (3127 - 14 games), but Newton had more success throwing the ball in his first two years in the league (4051 and 3869). His best value came in TDs (35 passing and 10 rushing). Cam set a career high in rushing attempts (132), but a career low in yards per carry (4.8). Over 78 games in his career, he has 43 rushing TDs. Newton had three 300 yard passing games and eight games with three TDs or more. All in all, 2015 was a great season especially when you consider Cam had his success with really below league average talent at the wide receiver position. With a healthy Kelvin Benjamin and a step forward in play by Devin Funchess, Newton should offer more upside in passing yards. His TD production doesn't seem repeatable as the stars just seem to align as far as schedule. Cam has an excellent chance of setting a career-high in passing yards with continued success in rushing production. I would consider 35+ TDs a reachable area based on his overall talent on the offensive and his ability to make plays with his legs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
5.03 Matt Brandon - I'm not one to typically pick a quarterback early, or for that matter, the very first one in the draft. But in the fifth round, I couldn?t pass on pairing Olsen up with Superman.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
4.12 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - I wasn’t planning on taking a QB here. My draft froze and it auto-picked Cam. However, I had the option to go back and change it, but wasn’t devastated by the pick. After all, while I would usually wait on a QB Cam is both the top Fantasy QB and my personal favorite QB in the league. I was willing to roll with him.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.04 Football Diehards - Justin Lonero - Newton might be the only tight end worth a reach. His ten rushing touchdowns in 2015 make him a big favorite over the rest of the quarterback's.
